Russia and Misys has always worked in partnership by underpinning the growth
with market-leading solutions keeping pace with the increase in volumes and
customer demands from the region’s retail banking sector. Raiffeisenbank
is today the 9th largest bank in Russia in terms of assets and runs more than

development environments to introduce significant new capabilities, making it
more robust and improving its ability to scale as the bank grows its operations
and increases volumes of transactions.
Mr. Schoefboeck, COO of Raiffeisenbank Russia comments: The bank had a strong
business need to migrate to Midas Plus as quickly as possible. We were looking
for a new system platform to support our future growth. The bank and Misys
formed a strong experienced team to ensure the rapid implementation of the
latest version of Midas Plus. Thanks to the strong team and partnership between
Raiffeisenbank and Misys, the migration went very smoothly and successfully.
Russia and CEE has seen rapid development over the past decade and Misys has
been able to work alongside Raiffeisen to support the bank’s growth in
that market, adds Richard Watrasiewicz, Director Professional Services Europe,
Misys. Misys Midas Plus 1.4 is the latest core banking solution which will
enable Raiffeisen International Bank to manage its growth smoothly, whilst
